Join a Grower Peer Group

HTS Ag Grower Peer Groups are made up of like-minded growers who meet quarterly for two days, in a geographically-separated, non-competitive environment to network and discuss issues specific to each member’s concerns.

Our Grower Peer Group experience is a unique forum for growers who are serious about implementing a model for success in their own operations, through sharing and collaboration of best practices.

Participating in a peer group provides growers a great opportunity to interact, share and learn with top-notch growers that are not their competitors.

We’re forming new groups now, if you’re interested in joining a peer group, please contact us at 1-800-741-3305 or email for more information.
